Epic Games is being torn a new one by gamers again.
As you’d expect, Epic’s critics are taking it as fresh grist in the ongoing controversy over Epic’s storefront — which might turn off developers who want to bring their games there in future.
They also said the data it found went back to Epic, and the company’s store app stored hardware information in its registry.
PC Gamer later confirmed the launcher “poked around” in Steam files.
He said that the app makes an encrypted local copy of your Steam friend info, which is sent to Epic if you choose to import your friends list.
Seriously, it’s a giant mess in there.
